It’s August in Central Pennsylvania, and in many ways it feels like every August in years past. Summer is at its zenith; in fact the greenery has never looked more spectacular. But soon, summer will begin its descent into fall with a patchwork quilt of colors that slowly spreads across our hills, mountains and valleys. If you’ve never experienced fall in Pennsylvania, it’s truly a sight to behold. Here are 5 early fall activities in Bloomsburg, PA to get the most out of this fabulous time of year!
- The Inn, Farmhouse & Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill – There’s never been a better time to visit our Turkey Hill complex, with great dining specials at our Farmhouse Restaurant and Farmer Moofy’s Produce Stand in our parking lot 7 days a week. Our Brewery has been knocking it out of the park with Tuesday Pasta Nights and Ramen Thursdays at the Brew Pub, paired with 12-15 of our signature brews on tap as well as an extensive bottled collection.
- Bloomsburg University Begins Fall Semester – Our Inn is an ideal place to camp out while you visit or help your student move in and get acclimated. As the “university on the hill”, Bloomsburg University overlooks the Town of Bloomsburg, just a few hundred yards from the business district. Bloomsburg’s full fall semester begins August 17, 2020 and concludes November 24. The university has implemented a class schedule designed to offer flexibility while addressing students’ needs. Approximately 53% of classes are currently scheduled to be online, another 22% blended (mix of in-person and online), and the final 25% will be face-to-face in-person. Students who require on-campus living will be offered residential housing. Please read the university’s “Back To Bloom” reopening plan in its entirety for complete details.
- The Exchange Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary – While The Exchange Gallery’s Annual ArtFest for 2020 has been cancelled, there is no stopping their 10th Anniversary celebration! The Exchange is now open Monday and Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m, with varying hours from week to week. To celebrate their 10th year, The Exchange is now featuring “Nest3,” a popular open-call show theme from the past blending 2- and 3-dimensional works. As long as the artists’ work fit through the front door, The Exchange will display it. The show runs through September 4.
- Destination Blues – Destination Blues began as an annual music festival in multiple venues throughout Columbia and Montour Counties. Now produced as part of The Exchange Gallery, Destination Blues undertook the “Backstage Pass to the Blues” program, bringing world-class musicians into area schools, and also launched a monthly ”Listening Room” in its storefront art gallery on Main Street in Bloomsburg. While live Listening Room performances and the Backstage Pass have been on hiatus, Destination Blues has taken The Listening Room online with a series of livestreaming shows.
- Covered Bridge Festival: Although the 2020 Covered Bridge Festival in October has been postponed until 2021, you can still shop the vendors online – including Aunt Jan’s Salsa from Millville, PA,, a festival favorite. Festival-goers also love Incredible Popcorn of Bloomsburg. With flavors such as Philly Cheesesteak, John the Greek Gyro, Loaded Baked Potato, Soft Pretzel, Cheddar Ale and Apple Pie, it’s a whole new popcorn experience! Buy online or visit their store at 1009 Old Berwick Rd when you stay with us at Turkey Hill.
